…and so it grows!
These are some serious new photographers!!!
This is the exciting part of what we can do. Making a connection and running a workshop is only the beginning. What happens afterwards has the potential to be even more rewarding, and ultimately it is what we strive for at Cameras4Change. Giving people that have never had the opportunity to use a camera is an amazing experience. It is invigorating, soul defining and gives meaning to and for everyone involved. Workshop participants usually take the camera and run with it, to take photos, to have the experience to define their world, to look back on who they are, where they come from, and then where they want to go! Photography has the potential to offer all of this. Our June workshops in Mexico were just that, and now our partner organizations are continuing an even deeper and rich legacy with the cameras we left behind! We love these photos of the budding new photographers in Huamantla eager to take photos!! Thank you to Liliana Riva Palacio of Proyecto ConcentrArte working in conjunction with Sistema Biobolsa and Isla Urbana. Lili is creating a living legacy with the cameras from the workshops!! It is fantastic that they are continuing to be utilized and introducing photography to whole new generations that would otherwise not have touched a camera yet!!

In Huamantla children leave their community in search of the best images. Thank you
